Actually, psychology as a science has many theories about dreaming,moreover, you can find a specific approach - Oneirology - scientific study of dreams. Your dreams are reflections of your real life, any actions, processes and so on which have happened are collected by your unconsciousness and during REM sleeping this information transfers to images and you have seen a dream. Another question, could dreams predict the future? probably yes for the nearest future, because it is a result of deep analisis and hard work of brain in a logical way. {-: Anyway, dreams show us our own persoanl problems and teach us how to solve them.
For example, you can consider for study Froud theory and his popular aspects
Firstly, Freud pointed out a constant connection between some part of every dream and some details of a dreamer’s life during the previous waking state.
Secondly, Freud, after studying the dreamer’s life and modes of thought, his mannerism and apparently insignificant details of his conduct, come to the conclusion that there was in every dream the attempted or successful gratification of some wishes, conscious or unconscious.
Thirdly, he proved that many of our dream visions are symbolical, which causes us to consider them as absurd and unintelligible; the combination of those symbols, however, makes very transparent to trained observer.
Fourthly, Freud showed that sexual desires play an enormous part in our unconscious, a part with great hypocrisy has always tried to minimise, if not to ignore entirely.
Finally, Freud established a direct connection between dreams and insanity, between the symbolic visions of our sleep and symbolic actions of the mentality deranged.

yes i believe that our dreams mean something but only sometimes, not always. because its a kind of thinking.dreams can be about the our day. but some people especially special people can see the future in their dreams. in some cultures in history people believe dreams and they organise their future. for example Ottomans used to use this way before big wars.

Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

Hm... In my opinion, dreams comes from the unconscious. Example; in a day time, you think about a beautiful girl. And in night time when you sleep, your brain can't stop think about it. So your brain is imagine about that girl. You ask this girl to become your girl and she accept it... and this is dream... {-: But it will not really happen on next day. When you ask that girl to become your girl, you got slap on your face... :lol:
So... I believe, dreams doesn't mean something... {-:

Hi eveyone!

I don't think that dreams have a speacial meaning for us. Our brain assimiliate all the things, experiences and thoughts of our daily life … dreams are like a mirror of our unconsciousness.
When we feel pain or fear or happiness, then we can live through these moments or feelings in our dreams. Maybe it is possible, that a dream can give you inspiration for the solution of a problem or it inspires you for some ideas. But that's all. People shouldn't think about their dreams too much … it is better to think more about life :-)

At the moment I'm dreaming of spring ... but it's still wintertime :cry:

I'm not a psychologist but according to what I have read in psychology book about dream.
Dream is present in our subconscious mind. It is a reflection of what is inside our subconscious mind. Thus, we see events of images when we are sleep. In my opinion dream can mean something only if you will believe in what you have dream. So, it is a matter of claiming that it mean something.

Yes, dreams are way of nature on telling or informing us about something that we (must) need to do. Or others that may affect our environment like friendships work, family and even future. I’ve actually dream a lot and every dream differ from other, which I think have a significant relation to what I’m doing currently.

Dreams are many interpretations regardless of what have you dreamed of. But, it’s up to you if you will believe or ignore them. As much as I can remember, the most common fictitious dreams that I’ve is falling from a high-rise building. Therefore, I think that I may fall to something I don't know. What I can only think is, to fail on achieving my goal; and that’s why I keep on doing what I need to do to achieve it.

I think dreams are often our deep-seated fears or worries going around in our head when we are asleep. Sometimes past events can relive themselves in a dream until they are recognised and dealt with.

I don't believe that our dreams mean something because they are create thanks to our imagination. What is more I think that our dreams are not true and sometimes they tell the stories which we want to experience. Nevertheless in my opinion dreams are necessary in our lifes because thanks to them we can fulfill our dreams in the imaginary world.
